Hey BB fam!
This week has been spectacular being HoH. Last time I was HoH was only for 24 hours during Battle of the Block, so this week I’ve been enjoying the full experience! In my blog, I’m going to talk about how things have been going in the house this week, what it’s like to live in the BB house with my identical twin sis, the fun/weird things we’ve been up to, how my game is going and the growing connections I’ve been making.
First things first, I want to give a shout out to my wonderful family, I miss you guys so so much! Mom, I miss you, your laughter, and your cooking dearly. I’ve been making you proud and have been cooking up a storm in the house. Angela, I got your letter in my HoH basket this week! It made Julia and me cry so much. We miss our big sister more than words can describe, and it’s so great to hear you’re doing well back in the 305. Can’t wait to give you a cheek rub!
Since Daddy doesn’t know much about blogs, when you guys read this tell him that Juj and I miss him terribly and we can’t wait to give him a big hug. Also, Nena we miss you too much and we know you’re always up-to-date watching our shenanigans on the Live Feeds!
Lastly, I want to shout out my peeps at work! I miss you guys dearly and I can’t wait to see how much the company has grown over the past few months. :)
So, I’m sure you guys have been keeping up with us on the Live Feeds, but I just wanted to let everyone know how awesome it is to have my identical twin sister in this game with me! We are having one of the best summers of our young adult lives, and words cannot describe how excited I was to see her walk through the front door as Julia. (Finally!). It was so hard for us to live and function under one identity.
Although we are really similar, we have so many differences. The other Houseguests are able to tell us apart perfectly, which is great because it gets kind of annoying when people can’t tell us apart and refer to us as Twin 1 and Twin 2! All in all, we are so fortunate to have made it this far in the game. I thought we would for sure be the #1 targets as soon as Julia got here as herself.
Austin has been like the papa bear protecting his young cubs. He’s the best!
While we’re on the subject, ahem ahem, as I’m sure you all have seen, Austin and I have been getting pretty close :) He makes me laugh so much, and in this house you really need that! We love to cook together, work out together, hang together, and the best part about him is that he lets me yell at him and takes it like a champ. :P
Although he and I have been having a blast in the BB world together, it’s sad to think about life outside this house because he lives here in L.A. and I’m across the country in MIA. Things are going fantastic with him, thus far, so it will be interesting to see where we will be once we step back into the real world.
We are both hopeful we’ll make it work, so we’ll see where the journey takes us!
Now, let’s get down to brass tacks and talk about my game.
First of all, I am so stoked Julia and I survived Double Eviction! You have no idea how fast my heart was pounding that night! It was, by far, the most stressed I have ever been in the game thus far!
Thankfully, Steve won the loop comp, so I knew right away that Julia and I were going to be safe. Not only are we working with Steve—our alliance is called Scamper Squad, and it consists of Julia, me, Austin, Vanessa, and him—but we have also grown to love him so much!
Julia and I call him the little bro we never had. We are having so much fun getting him to open up and horse around the house with him.
All in all, it has been a very successful week as the reigning HoH. I have been having tons of fun with the final nine Houseguests. It really sucks I had to put Johnny Mac and Becky up on the block because I have grown to know and love both of them. However, as the numbers dwindle, I didn’t have much of a choice since I’ve never worked with them throughout the game, and I’ve made previous loyalties.
I hope to see Julia win HoH next week! She hasn’t won one yet, so that would be cool if the #TwinTeam stayed in power.
I’m signing out, but I hope you guys have enjoyed watching me grow and adapt to the crazyBig Brother world. It has been the ride of a lifetime and I’m so fortunate for this whole experience.
All my best,
